Located in northern California, the city of San Francisco makes all kinds of visitors fall in love. The Golden Gate Bridge, the Painted Ladies, Lombard Street or Alcatraz Island are some tourist attractions that were etched in our memory by their appearance in American series and movies. Traveling to San Francisco makes you the protagonist.
PRESIDIO OF SAN FRANCISCO
Head to the Presidio of San Francisco. Take the PresidiGo Shuttle and start your tour by exploring this National Historic Landmark that the Ohlone people occupied for thousands of years.
The Presidio was the homeland of the tribes in the area. It then became a military post dominated by Spanish, Mexican, and eventually American armies. Today it is a large park where the warlike past is mixed with natural beauty and recreation.
This place offers spectacular views of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Take a little time to take some beautiful photos. Likewise, you have the possibility of learning its story beforehand in the accessible Welcome Center.
